Tuesday 20 – Monday 26 September 2016
Home of magnificent buildings, elegant palaces, fine art, classical music, waltzes, coffee shops and beautiful gardens …… this is Vienna where you will be spending 3 nights before heading to the lovely Baroque romantic city of Salzburg, dominated by its 900 year old castle, for the remainder of your holiday. Whilst in Vienna stroll through the narrow lanes in the old town, visit and celebrate Mass in the splendid St. Stephen’s Cathedral and afterwards sample the famous Sachertorte or delicious strudel. Then on to Salzburg visiting en route the famous Melk Abbey overlooking the Danube and run by the Benedictines. Salzburg has strong Irish links.
